the last word, v13

People Magazine has this feature thing on the last page of their magazine.  On the last page, they have a feature called the last word (so clever!) where a celebrity answers a few questions on some of the last things they've done.  So even though I'm not a celebrity or anything (wait. what?!), I'm going to go ahead and answer the questions.  Because, why not?

The last thing I broke was a a pair of reading glasses.  Thankfully I have a hundred cheap pairs laying all over the house, because I seem to break them all of the time.  I was sad though, because the latest pair I broke I really liked.  They were on my bed and I sat on them in the dark.  Damn it.

The last time I was scared was probably when we were recently away at this resort, and Brooke ran into the path of a car that was backing up.  It was like a slo-mo thing, and thank God someone yelled and the driver slammed on the brakes!  That was a heart on the ground kind of moment.

The last time I fought with a sibling was probably over the summer.  My BIL John and I had a loud screamy tiff one night, which is so very rare for me.  I don't fight with anyone much.  I think I won because I got an apology the next day.  That's all I will say about that.

The last TV show I watched was the finale of The Americans last night.  I decided to sort of challenge myself to watch the top ten shows recently recommended by People Magazine, and that was the first one on the list.  I ended up having to buck up and download the series from itunes because I couldn't get it on demand, but it was really great!  It's a show on FX about this couple who are Russian spies in the 80's, living as an average American family.  Kerri Russell and Matthew Rhys star in it and they're really good.  I can't wait til the next season starts.

The last day off I had was, well, pretty much every day.  I don't work.  Well, I work, but not like at a jobjob, so every day is "off" for me.  The last time I had a day off from my regular life though, like of being a mom and taking care of things at home I guess would have to be my last real solo get-away, which was to NM.  I have a couple of new get-aways in mind though, so I'll have some days off soon enough.   

The last movie I watched was Frozen, at the theater with the kids.  I liked it!  It was really cute, a good little story with some good music.  Idina Menzel played one of the parts, and her voice is amazing, so that was cool.  Victoria really liked the movie because it was set in Norway, and it reminded her of home.


  1. Frozen was awesome.

    We also watch The Americans. It comes back next month. Yay!

    1. I'm totally excited about the next season of The Americans, Amber!
